do you think it would be too weird to have a kid named Franklin and a kid named Theodore?

i've asked this before but i just really don't like any boy names besides Theodore, but my son's name is Franklin. ;)

just for fun! what do you think?

if you aren't already, think Roosevelts. did that come to mind? do you think it would if i hadn't said it? would they get made fun of in school? they'll be 2-3 years apart in school btw.

  • Hahaha very patriotic.. if you like it, and it makes you happy thats all that matters. It could have been worse, at least its not Alvin and Theodore lol

  • I love both names (I really love Franklin though as my oldest son is named Franklin) Theodore is cute to. Would you call him Theo or Teddy? I love more traditional names!

  • As long as your last name isn't Roosevelt (lol). I think they are cute and most people aren't event going to think twice about it. I might look at you funny if one were Alvin, otherwise, it's cute! Great names.

  • Is your last name Roosevelt? NO it didn't come to mind, lol. I was thinking of Franklin the turtle does he have a sibling named Theodore? LOL I am a little slow. I love traditional names and who cares what some one else thinks do what you love.

  • They are great names. Yes, I thought of Roosevelt, but also Franklin the turtle. Either way, they're good, solid, normal names.

  • LOL. no our last name is not roosevelt. :)

    we used to get a lot of "like the turtle" comments but not so much anymore.

    i guess w/ theodore we would get "like the chipmunk?" and also "like the roosevelts?"
